Jacqueline Wechsler

I am passionate about change and enabling better futures for individuals, society and the planet. My professional focus is on three mutually enforcing components (1) practice/doing, (2) teaching/sharing and (3) learning. There is no one approach for change and my work draws on multiple practices including Human Centred Design, Systems Thinking, Organisational Change, Theory U, Futures, Asset-Based Community Development, Neuroscience, and Non-violent Communication. A life long learner, my practice is continually evolving. I believe that inner work is necessary for change related practice and I am currently completing an ICF Coaching Accreditation focused on Process-Oriented Psychology and Embodiment. Based in Australia, I consult independently as Sticky Design Studio and convene a community of practice called Social Design Sydney.

There are different ways participatory design can influence young people with cognitive disability. Read reflections on co-design methodology and ways it can help.
